  6. Ensure that all pupils, who have not passed one or both parts of the CAHSEE by the end of grade 12, or parents or legal guardians if the pupil is under the age of 18, are notified in writing at the last known address before the end of each school term of the availability of the services in sufficient time to register for or avail themselves of those services each term for two consecutive academic years thereafter and are notified of the right of a pupil to file a complaint regarding those services.
